Roots 5 and 6 definitely need some work, is root 5 simply an {{alternative form of|Appendix:Proto-Indo-European/man-|man-|lang=ine-pro}}? Mglovesfun (talk) 22:15, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Is 'mind' a good one to list under English or is the source too indirect? --121.74.236.128 04:27, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

PII *mányatay[edit]

@Rua, the PII form looks to point to the 3sg.mid. *(é)-yetor, *(é)-yetoy. --Victar (talk) 20:24, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

What about the other languages though? —Rua (mew) 21:38, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
@Rua: Works for Celtic, and I don't even know if the Greek belongs there. --Victar (talk) 00:34, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
@Victar: Sorry, for which are you saying the Celtic works? Looking at them, the Celtic and Greek are perfect equations from *mn̥-yé-tor, whereas the IIr seems to be *mén-ye-tor. —*i̯óh₁nC[5] 04:55, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
@JohnC5: Sorry, was very unclear. *mn̥-yé-tor works for Celtic, not not PII, where it would have become *mayátay. *mén-ye-tor ~ *mn̥-yó-ror could technically work for Celtic, if you say it was leveled to *mn̥-, but more likely, they're two different PIE derivatives. --Victar (talk) 05:26, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Thematic stems don't ablaut, so there couldn't be a paradigm as you described. —Rua (mew) 21:13, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
@Rua: regardless, it doesn't fit for the Sanskrit form, so I'm moving it under its own PIE derivative. --Victar (talk) 22:47, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Pending solid evidence for Victar's claim that the expected result would be *mayátay, I've undone the separation, following LIV. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 21:41, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
